Had the 5 course dinner menu for 2.
Wonderful romantic décor and superb service. You can tell right away they pride themselves on providing a unique dining experience with the wonderful handwashing at the table before eating.
The lentil soup was a bit too salty and what I can only describe as a strong tomato paste taste and consistency. The mixed salad was much better, especially the beets and corn which had delicate flavours. The cinnamon on the carrots was a bit too strong. The next appetizer was deep fried phyllo pastries - one with spinach with cheese and the other with mergez - both were delicious but a bit heavy for an appetizer with the deep frying. We had the two tajine options on the menu for entrees - the lamb with preserved lemons and peas looked beautiful - but there were only two olives and one preserved lemon. I mustered the courage to ask for more lemon. To truly enjoy this dish however, I think one has to have every bite of meat with a sliver of lemon and olive. The Moroccan meatball tajine had beautiful potatoes and chickpeas that were molten with slow cooked flavor. Too bad both tajines were a bit too salty.
I should have prefaced this review with the fact that I'm a salt monger...I always tend to like food saltier than my friends and husband. So for me to find things salty...well, that's impressive.
The dessert was a very generic and unimpressive baklava with vanilla ice cream.
Overall, we loved the ambience, service and presentation of the meal. Perhaps the a la carte items were better? I would definitely go back to try it out. However, the set menu fell a bit short.
